transmission rebuild recommendations in Phoenix, AZ

Friend of mine has a 2001 Honda Accord EX Sedan...car has 152,000miles, and he is noticing that the transmission is slipping. Local mechanic is quoting him 1800US for a rebuild + install...anybody has any othe recommendations in terms of shops with better pricing/service in the Phoenix, AZ area? Thanks...

Thats about the lowest price I've seen for a rebuild. The best shops around here are indy's. Have heard/read negative things about the trans shop chains. Like Ammco etc. I'd try to steer clear of them.

Check the bbb.org to see if the shop has a good history.

I know it's not Phoenix, but I had my 2001 LX sedan trans rebuilt at Precision Inc in Tucson. I don't remember exactly, but it was something close to $2500, so I would think you're already getting a good deal. Precision is a Honda and Acura specialized shop.

$1800 is what I was quoted for a rebuild. It all came up to $2350. Actually the quote was $1650. I ended up replacing the TC,rear differential assy and the linear solenoid. I would expect to pay at least $2500 just in case something else is broke.

$1,800 is about right for a rebuild IMO.

I need to hire a VB consultant to help me with a few VB tricks that are above my head.

Where can I hire a good VB expert?

Be careful on if they know what they are doing. It could be a good deal or not. I know someone that had their trans fixed by low price shop, only to be stuck and had to bring it back.

Sometimes, you do get what you paid for.

Honda transmissions are the only one that does not use planetary gears. I'm not saying that's anything special (in fact it's not), but maybe their transmission experts may not be familiar with it.

Edit: Wow, old thread.

See if you can get a used one...rebuilds are overprice and usually those tranny shops just fixed the bad component and tell you lies about what they fix. They usually will tell you that they fix everything that is bad when really all they did was just replace the bad part.
